World's Best Travel
San Antonio joins exclusive list of world's best travel destinations for 2016
With the hottest new hotel nestled in the Pearl, and some of Texas’ best tacos in our backyard, we’re not surprised San Antonio made the cut on Travel + Leisure’s esteemed list of the “Best Places to Travel in 2016.”
The annual list is compiled by T+L’s A-list experts who know everything and anything about travel. Many factors were taken into consideration when determining 2016’s top destinations, which range from classic vacation spots to under-the-radar gems to destinations that are now easier to get to.
The carefully curated list for the upcoming year includes exotic and European hot spots — Ghent, Belgium; Tanzania; and Kochi, India — and more destinations close to home, including Detroit; Richmond, Virginia; and our fair city.
Out of 50 global destinations selected, San Antonio is the only Texas city on Travel + Leisure's list. The magazine touts the sexy new renovations to the St. Anthony Hotel, the River Walk, and the new Hotel Emma with all of its culinary additions.
Travel + Leisure goes so far as to say, “San Antonio, you're becoming cool.” But who’s kidding who? The magazine's a little late to that game — we've been pretty cool for a while now.
